Posts Tagged ‘3DS XL’

So my love affair with the 3DS started just a few months after its initial release about 3 years ago when I purchased the Cosmo Black version of the original 3DS(I know its insane, I actually waited, I must have been delusional, just in time to be in the Ambassador program though) , and then such as things always happen they released a Limited Edition Legend of Zelda version on Black Friday and although my heart skipped a beat I stuck to my original purchase (I know this will sound crazy but Im not a huge fan of gold, no matter how subtle it was on the original 3DS). Then shortly thereafter I learned of the release of the XL version and even though I was ecstatic with this I bided my time and hoped that they would shortly release it in all black. Now for those of you that pay attention there are upwards of over 60 different designs for the 3DS and it took forever for the US to get the all black version but finally it was announced!!!! I was so excited, but I knew I had to make mine special in a simple yet sexy way so after much search I found an amazing store on Etsy that has a variety of great quality vinyl decals called BetterStickers, and let me tell you they are better! I have always customized my machines in some way shape of form so I have tried a variety of decals and so far these are the best! Hope you enjoy the pics…

After months of having my decals there, I have had no lifting of the sticker (now that’s quality!)

In case you were wondering, the other two “stars” featured in these pics are my STL Ocarina that I acquired at Megacon 2012, and the Master Sword was a very lucky find in a little shop In Akihabara on my 2013 trip to Tokyo.
Stay tuned for future pics of new and previous acquisitions on “Geeky Goodness”!

Giddy with joy I tell you I was last night at midnight as I walked into my local game store to replace my stolen 3DS XL! I figured that while all the other gamers would be getting their hands on the newly released XboxOne it would be a perfect time for my new pick up my new 3DS XL and a Link Between Worlds (of course)!!! I had been waiting torturously to do so since my machine was stolen over two weeks ago but what a better day than on release day for the latest story in the Zelda franchise, and I also couldn’t help but firmly state my love for Nintendo and my support for Sony’s newest console (picked that up on release day at midnight as well). Dont get me wrong I am sure I will have to eventually give in and purchase one along with the rest of the gamers out there but not yet, I require a little more substance first…
My day didn’t end there as I had to contact Nintendo and ask if there was any way that I could get all my games that I had purchased as well as my Ambassador Certificate back, and you know what, they said yes! The guy that I was talking to probably thought I was a little nuts but I didn’t care I was so happy. After giving him a few pieces of information such as police report and serial numbers (from my old machine and new) he said I would just have to wait about 24 hours and that I would have all my eShop stuff back. I have dealt with alot of customer service reps in the past two weeks or so dealing with the theft of my belongings and I must say Nintendo takes the cake, from their awesome hold music (The Legend of Zelda soundtrack), to their amazingly pleasant people, and their desire to help, I am one happy customer! It s a pretty bad feeling having your belongings stolen and they helped this girl feel very special, so Thank You Nintendo for making a bad situation seem alot better!

The Loss of a 3DS XL

Just forty eight hours ago someone decided that they should help themselves to my purse and all of the belongings that I have worked so hard for and painstakingly collected along my journeys in this life. They decided that there existence on this planet was so great that in less than a minute time span they could take what took me a far greater time to acquire! Inside this bag I had all my most portable possessions, as most of us do it contained my iPhone (brand new 5s no less that I waited in line for at the crack of dawn on release day), my new amazing limited edition Hello Kitty clutch, a custom made Pokemon makeup bag, and various other treasures, (namely some amazing trinkets I brought back from a recent trip to Tokyo, I was working on a collection of Evee’s). But the item that has left the biggest hole in my life is my Black 3DS XL! I have had a 3DS almost since day one (just a few months shy) and I lovingly covered my original one in a beautiful decal of a Hyrulian crest. When they announced the XL I was giddy with excitement but decided that I could wait until they released it in black and an eternity later my patience paid off and as a good little Nintendo girl I showed up at the store day one and came home with my beautiful new XL. Such was my love for my original “customized” 3DS that I am not ashamed to say I shed a little tear as the system transfer became complete and it took me a few days to be good with my new friend but quickly we became inseparable once again. Since the first day I held my original and last 3DS in my hands there has not been a day that has gone by that I have not had a smile brought to my face as I opened my machine and sat back and enjoyed the fabulous new/classic worlds I was being transported too, with one exception of a few days of surgery and recovery earlier this year. This machine that has been my friend through good and bad was lovingly folded into a black case that I annoyingly had to find the perfect one and finally did, with 7 of the most important games I can never leave home without (just to name a few, Pokemon, ACNL, Monster Hunter) and it was currently awaiting my final decision on which fabulous decal would grace its sexy black surface, until forty eight hours ago. I am generally a very good natured soul and I always give people the benefit of the doubt even through the darkest of scenarios, I prefer to see butterflies and rainbows than clouds and lightning but 2 days ago a crack appeared in my shiny candy coating…
